Ein Engel auf Erden

Géza von Radványi West Germany, 1959

dionysus67's rating of the film Angel on Earth

Rather disappointing comedy that recycles the theological motif of the guardian angel in a colorful package of romantic love. The excquisite colors rescue this from total failure as the baby face Schneider is supported by a particularly poor ensemble (which includes also a silly role by Belmondo). Some terrible dubbing and ludicrously gross jokes complete a film that is neither funny nor stimulating.
